Last two weeks of June our family is going to Maine. Staying in Belfast area. Want to see MDI, whales, puffins, tides, hike, bike, kayak. Take a mail boat to an island....trying to keep expenses down. Where are the mail boats? More advice needed how to see Maine economically. Fish off a pier instead of a charter boat. O.K. where's a good pier? Grandchildren 12, 10 and 2 yr. Plus parents and grandparents. The seven of us are eager to go. Most motels don't want us to share one room. That puts a crimp on keeping the cost low. I hear you, it is crowded but we traveled out west in a small RV and got along great. And motels have bigger bathrooms!
